A Note from Pat:
As we slowly start to recover from the devastating impacts of the past 18 months, we all feel a sense of pride in what was accomplished by the staff and volunteers in Community Action agencies around New York State and across the country.
It was the worst of times, but people were helped. It was during these times we recognized a possibility to reconfigure life and our work towards the world we want, to reimagine what we might do and create the spaces in which we could reimagine together. Thank you for all you did then, for what you are doing today, and for what you will continue doing through what we all hope to be a brighter tomorrow.
I want to personally invite you to join us at the virtual 14th Annual Meeting of the Minds. It is my hope that this year’s agenda, as in the past, brings opportunity to learn from each other, to share our successful programs but more important to feel supported, valued, encouraged, and regenerated. This year I am excited to honor some special Community Action volunteers for service, leadership, courage, and heart!
Please register as soon as possible! As always there is no registration fee to allow as many to attend as would like.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text my cell at 585-943-7082. I look forward to seeing you in September but until then I would like to leave you with this thought…my thought about each of you, “The good things of prosperity are to be wished, but the good things that belong to adversity are to be admired.” ~Seneca
All my best,
